Something For The Weekend: Another Week In Review

by Olly MacNamee

Welcome to another weekend round-up of some of the more popular post from the past week, presented here in a digestible format for you to work through at your leisure. Another Saturday, another ten-to-takeaway:

  1. For a second week, last weekend’s Review Round Up makes it onto the list. It’s always good to see the regular columns being show some love by you the reader. Catch up on our round-up of comic book reviews here.
  2. Another (semi) regular column making onto this week’s list is Koom Kankesan’s ‘Contrarian Collector’. You can read it here.
  3. A third regular column on this week’s list is our regular Monday morning preview of all the X-Men titles coming out that week. I imagine with Way of X #1 debuting, this could have something to do with the success of last Monday’s previews which you can see for yourself here.
  4. The Prisoner action figures, out on Kickstarter now, drew the eyes of discernible fans. Check out the line-up of figures and how to back the campaign here.
  5. Proving Fornite is still a big deal, our preview for Batman/Fornite #4 was a popular one this past week. Why not take a look here?
  6. Another hot preview was IDW’s Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors #1 here.
  7. The news that film star Emilia Clarke was the latest actor to use their privilege to break into comics was a big news story this past week. Read more about M.O.M.: Mother of Madness from Image Comics here.
  8. Erik Amaya brought news that Dynamite Comics are to release Red Sonja: Black, White, Red #1 this July. Read more about the creator contributing here.
  9. Tito W James gave us reasons why we should be watching the Lone Wolf and Cub films here.
  10. Garth Ennis has a new comic coming out from AWA Upshot – Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal #1 – and it’s getting some retailer exclusive covers. As you can read here.

Before you go, here’s this week’s little something extra: With the announcement that Hip Hop act Flatbush Zombies are the latest musical group to get a comic book from Z2 Comics, why not hear from these Brooklyn based band now with a recent track from 2020, ‘Afterlife’:
